Set: 2003-04 Fleer Tradition (Rate)

Card: #277 Zarko Cabarkapa

“ Of all the more than 2000 NBA players with cards, this is the second one of his to be Card of the Day. (both of which were my scans) This one features a photo taken at the NBA Draft superimposed over a generic street ball photo. The veteran players in the set got much better cards. He played only three years in the NBA, and then retired due to injury. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing traditional about this lazy design. ” -carthage44

“ I get that he's a draft pick so there aren't any pictures of him in the team uniform, but this card is basically empty, front and back. "Destiny"?!? That was the best blurb Fleer could come up with? ” -dilemma19

“ Ah a love/hate retro card. What I love about Fleer Tradition is they usually used regular old fashioned raw cardboard and a modified older design. OK this guy is a rookie so he has no pro stats but couldn't they have listed his college years? Maybe some kind of bio. The back looks a bit blank. This is where the old style of having a cartoon on the back helped. Another "hate" is the wearing a suit/tie with modern ball cap is more recent years tradition looks very odd in a retro set. ” -captkirk42

“ For some reason the back of this card cracks me up. No college or NBA experience, yet it was his destiny. LOL ” -RoyalChief

“ And the award for worst back in the history of sports cards goes to.....the envelope please..... ” -NJDevils

“ I just never really cared for a suit and tie on a card. One of the least informative card backs I've ever seen. Spelling his name in Scrabble will yield many points. ” -Kaline6

“ It is my "destiny" to own this card someday. ” -switzr1

Set: 1999 Topps Chrome Star Wars Archives (Rate)

Card: #9 Ben Kenobi Rescues Luke!

“ I never got any cards from this set except the promo. Still not sure what I was thinking! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I am so tired of all this Star Wars garbage. ” -carthage44

“ Help us Obi-Wan....you're are only hope. ” -RoyalChief

“ Nice card. Of course the original 1977 card would be better, but whatever. Great card for those who love Chrome stuff. ” -captkirk42

“ how romantic ” -dilemma19

“ What if the Sandpeople had killed Luke at the beginning of Star Wars? None of the other stuff would have happened. Thanks, Ben! ” -switzr1

“ I love this set, want to complete it but it's hard to find now! ” -Joshua825

“ Luke,I feel a great disturbance in the force !!!! Beware the Jar Jar Binks!!! I like earlier Star Wars cards,this one not so much. ” -uncaian

Set: 1984 O-Pee-Chee Gremlins (Rate)

Card: #47 Crashing Through!

“ Gremlins!! I so wanted a Gizmo when I was a kid. It is fun to introduce this to my kids and watch them light up when seeing it. ” -RoyalChief

“ One of my favorite "Christmas " movies.Not a bad set either. ” -uncaian

“ Love the 80's movie cards! ” -SFC Temple

“ Another nice Non-Sport card. Not a very exciting picture subject though. ” -captkirk42

“ My kids collected these and have passed them along to me....nice of them. ” -NJdevils

“ Excellent blurb, but not the best translation into French. ” -dilemma19

“ I really hope these are valuable because they are sweet! ” -carthage44

Set: 2001 Topps (Rate)

Card: #639 Wayne Gomes

“ I personally love the 2001 design. The pic on the front works into the design nicely. ” -DarkSide830

“ I liked the 2001 set, but by then was starting to leave the hobby for a few years. ” -jupiterhill

“ I like the design of the card, but the border color is one of the worst ever. I also think Topps should keep the anniversay logo just on the back of the card, it ruins the front. ” -engine614

“ Poor scan. Must be one of the early entries on the site. ” -carthage44

“ Great back, though I would prefer a cartoon to the second photo. Just the child in me, I guess. ” -NJdevils

“ Not much of a fan of these. I don't get the "teal" or whatever color border. Such a let down for the 50th anniversary card. ” -RoyalChief

“ Hated this set when I first saw it about 3 or 4 years later (I was in my hobby hiatus when it came out) Still don't like the gold foil/leaf lettering but at least it is somewhat more legible than some of the 1990s and some more recent years. This set I have grown to like even after the original hatred. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1993 SP (Rate)

Card: #90 Rick Wilkins

“ OK you will know what I will say about the gold foil/leaf printing. Hard to read the "Chicago Cubs" on this card. Plus the "SP" shield logo is too big. Back I would prefer full stats rather than the "vintage" previous season and career totals. ” -captkirk42

“ ... Active and quality design by Upper Deck. "SP" was always a fun pack to purchase because even the common cards felt like they had value. ” -jefferies9

“ Yelling at the ump? ” -vrooomed

“ Cubbies, Cubbies, GO WHITE SOX!!! ” -carthage44

“ Thanks for using less than half of the back of the card for stats. ” -NJdevils

“ Straightforward ” -Quinn820

“ Never a fan of the mini-picture-on-the-back cards (let alone SP in general). I need stats! Rick went to the same HS as former Celtic Dee Brown. He also runs a foundation which provides athletic opportunities for special needs kids - all around nice guy. ” -NSEndo

Set: 1989 Score Baseball's 100 Hottest Players (Rate)

Card: #2 David Cone

“ I love the sets like this from the "junk wax era". The base sets were a dime a dozen. Not many insert sets, and those cards were abundant too. But if you liked and bought these kind of sets, you at least got to see different pictures of the top players and prospects of the day. Nowadays, a player of Cone's caliber would get about 300 cards a year. ” -switzr1

“ ... Good ole score embracing the quality color cards that includes color photos on the front and back. Though it's a bland card design, they helped change the look of the back of sports cards of the future. ” -jefferies9

“ Cone was a very solid pitcher for a long time. He doesn't get the credit that he deserves. ” -carthage44

“ These are so nostalgic. Brings back great memories for me. Wish he stayed with the Royals longer. Would love to get this set again. ” -RoyalChief

“ At first glance I thought this was a Minor League card. LOL. Nice card for an insert set. If it was for a regular base set it would be severely lacking. ” -captkirk42

Set: 2003 Strictly Ink Dr. Who Big Screen (Rate)

Card: #030 Drug Tests

“ YES DOCTOR WHO! Other than that I don't have much knowledge about this card. I vaguely recall hearing about this set. Don't have any of them though. This would be a nice set to have the base of, not sure what inserts/extras if any it had. ” -captkirk42

“ And everybody cringes when they read the title of this card... ” -switzr1

“ I know absolutely nothing about Dr. Who, other than a lot of people who like the same things I like tend to like it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Nothing against Dr. Who as I watched the show when I was growing up, however, file this card, and the set it is in, under those sets which should never have been made and resulted in a tremendous waste of tree pulp. Drug Tests....meh. ” -Flcardtrader

“ I just can't get into this show, I have tried trust me....its just so weird. Maybe the newer one's are a bit toned down on the acid trips. ” -RoyalChief

“ ... It's always enjoyable to look through non-sports cards to conjure up memories of a show, film, or event. No matter how corny the card may be, you always think back to that time period in your life. ” -jefferies9

“ WHAT??? HAHA!!! ” -carthage44

Set: 2003-04 SP Authentic (Rate)

Card: #30 Henrik Zetterberg

“ Once again, I fail to see why everybody goes nuts about SP Authentic. For some reason I have always liked getting players who have a last name that starts with Z, or the other rarer letters like Q or Y. I keep hoping that someday there will be an NBA player who starts with X. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Can't say anything nice about this one. ” -captkirk42

“ ... I love Upper Deck but sometimes I feel they just print sets to see how many we will buy. ” -jefferies9

“ Zetterberg is excellent , this card is not. ” -uncaian

“ Nothing going on here but horizontal lines. ” -carthage44

Set: 2005 Upper Deck Sweet Spot (Rate)

Card: #98 Carlos Ruiz

“ Whole lotta blank real estate on the back of this card. ” -Kaline6

“ Nothing sweet about this design. ” -carthage44

“ ... Nice design but a boring back to the card. ” -jefferies9

“ Nice card for a "base" card from a product that was pushing Game Used artifacts and Autographs. ” -captkirk42

“ There's enough room on the back to write a prescription for Adderall. ” -NJDevils

Set: 1997-98 Donruss Elite (Rate)

Card: #4 Pavel Bure

“ ... Well designed card layout all the way around. Not a "busy" card and the back has enough info to cover the basics. ” -jefferies9

“ Is this guy's name anywhere on the front of the card? Can't tell if it's by the team name or not. Might just be a poor scan. ” -carthage44

“ The Russian Rocket ! This set is alright,I just find cards that don't have write ups kind of boring. ” -uncaian

“ Definitely a solid set. Hard to find boxes of this nowadays. Also, a very condition-sensitive set. ” -suomibear8

“ not a big hockey fan but nice action photo..seeing fans behind glass in action photos are fun ” -mzentko

“ More picture, less border please ” -mbarlow092

“ Nice card for the end of the Junk Years 1990s. Having the player name on the front would be nice. ” -captkirk42

“ My all-time favorite hockey player. Not real crazy about the design (is his name even on the front in all that foil?), but I would still like to have a copy of this one. ” -switzr1
